Source Two
The First World War began when Britain and Germany went to war in August 1914.
The outbreak of war was greeted in Australia.
On 25 April 1915 members of the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) landed at Gallipoli together with troops from New Zealand, Britain, and France.
Australians reached the peak of their fighting performance in the battle of Hamel on 4 July.
he First World War remains the most costly conflict in terms of deaths and casualties
over 60,000 were killed and 156,000 wounded, gassed, or taken prisoner.
The outbreak of war was greeted in Australia, as in many other places, with great public enthusiasm.
most of the men accepted into the army in August 1914 were sent first to Egypt, not Europe, to meet the threat which a new belligerent, the Ottoman Empire (Turkey)
he allies tried to break through Turkish lines.
the war on the Western Front had long been settled in a stalemate.
the opposing armies facing each other from trench systems.
The development of machine-guns and artillery favoured defence over attack and compounded the impasse, which lasted until the final months of the war.
While the overall hostile stasis continued throughout 1916 and 1917.
The Great War was the first armed conflict in which aircraft were used.

The causes of World War One are complicated
Triple Alliance (Germany, Austria and Italy)
the members of the Entente (Britain, France and Russia)
France was suspicious of Germany.She had a huge army but a poor navy.
Germany's fear of the huge British Empire.
Huge amounts of money were made from these colonies and Britain had a powerful military presence in all parts of the world.
this did make relations with Britain more fragile than was perhaps necessary for the economic returns Germany got from her colonies.
Britain concluded that Germany's desire to increase the size of her navy was to threaten Britain's naval might.
a naval race took place.
Britain launched a new type of battleship - the Dreadnought.
All it did was to increase tension between the two nations.

Confirming Evidence
Patterns
Answer
Imperialism helped spark the beginning of world war one as countries such as Germany and Great Britain wanted to become more powerful and better their economies. This meant creating more colonies and growing in size. Both countries started to grow their navies and put a lot of money into building battleships. This 'naval race' caused much tension and suspicion between the two countries generating a very fragile relationship.
